My Locale Colorado Rockies
About Me I'm 45 years old, 6'4" and 195 lbs. I've backpacked in the Colorado Rockies, the Wasatch and Uinta mountains, and in Zions National Park. I mountain bike in the Colorado Rockies. I've kayaked in Yellowstone and on Flaming Gorge, and rafted the Green, Colorado and Snake rivers. My trips are usually a week long or less. I love to hike wherever I can. I'm an Assistant Scout Master and I'm often out with the Scouts. My immediate goal is to thru-hike the Colorado trail. I've lived in Utah, Ohio, Illinois, Argentina, California, and Colorado.

Re: Re: Ti-Stake Multiuse Gear
I was not as ambitious as you and just made a toothbrush. The brush head from my Sonicare was ideal for this. The remaining handle is round and just slightly bigger than the diameter of the ti...

Re: Re: Re: One Luxury,juggling balls
Larry, I used to juggle with punctured tennis balls full of sand. My "professional" juggling balls are filled with bird seed. I thought of making some filled with dried food, that way they would be...

Re: Pack size, I am light / My wife is not.
